This morning I decided it was time to switch to my macro lens. I really enjoy photographing insects, and I know that there is never a shortage of subjects! After changing my lens I headed out to one of my favorite trails on the Hennepin Canal. It has been quite a while since I have had my macro lens out, and I had forgotten how difficult it is to use. Because there is no autofocus, I have to manually focus and any extra motion, including the wind, can really mess things up. Although I managed a few decent photos, I have a lot of work ahead of me!
